  • '60 Minutes' Doesn't Air Hillary Dodge About DNC Interference

    07/25/2016 9:53:14 AM PDT · by Red in Blue PA · 19 replies
    There's plenty covered in the interview that ran on TV, but perhaps the newsiest topic of the day, the DNC turmoil, didn't make it into the broadcast. In a video posted under the banner of 60 Minutes Overtime and touted as an "unaired" clip from the interview, Pelley asked Clinton and Kaine about the leak. Clinton's answers—or, more accurately, her non-answers—on what she knew about DNC interference in the primary were…curious. Among them was Clinton's unwillingness to say any such intervention by the party committee to favor one candidate would be "improper."

    Michael Warren at The Weekly Standard notes that somehow, the staff at CBS News doesn’t have a nose for news. The hottest breaking story – the Wikileaks posting of DNC e-mails proving they were tilted toward Mrs. Clinton and plotting to damage the Sanders campaign – got left on the cutting room floor Sunday night. Does anyone believe that CBS News isn't capable of realizing this e-mail portion of Scott Pelley's interview was the hottest, and editing it in instead of out? It almost makes one wonder if CBS felt they had to clear it with the DNC or the...

    "I am adamantly opposed to anyone bringing religion into our political process," Hillary Clinton told Scott Pelley yesterday, referring to a recently released email that appears to be an attempt to undermine Bernie Sander's presidential candidacy on the basis of his religion. Earlier this week, WikiLeaks released thousands of emails that appear to have been sent and received by members of the Democratic National Committee, including one from a senior DNC staffer. Pelley read parts of this email to Clinton: "For Kentucky and West Virginia, can we get someone to ask his belief? Does he believe in a god? He...

    Support for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump ticked up across battleground states following the Republican National Convention last week, according to the new CBS News Battleground Tracker Poll. Trump now has 42 percent support across the 11 battleground states surveyed — up from the 40 percent he had last week before the convention. Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has 41 percent support, unchanged from last week's poll. According to the poll, 55 percent of Republicans said Trump's message at the convention made them feel hopeful, and about 40 percent said it made them feel enthusiastic. Among independents, 32 percent...

After voicing his sympathy for the victims of the shootings in Louisiana, Minnesota, and Dallas over the past week, Giuliani discussed the need for understanding between the black and white communities, as well as the lack of attention given to black-on-black crime compared to instances of police shooting black men: Whites have to realize that African-American men have a fear and boys have a fear of being confronted...

However, he can’t bring himself to vote for the Democratic counterpart, Hillary Clinton, either. But the 2012 GOP nominee has a solution: putting his own wife’s name on the ballot. “It’s a matter of personal conscience,” Romney told CBS News’ John Dickerson Wednesday at the Aspen Ideas Festival. “I can’t vote for either of those two people.” Romney explained that he simply cannot get behind Trump’s divisive character. “Our nominee is saying, ‘Hey look it’s these people here.

"Looking at it now, I can see on a script -- in a transcript, or even somebody watching the clip -- I can see how they would jump to the conclusion that it was racist. But I never felt anything at all."

    Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump says if he's elected president, he'd have the top law enforcement official in his administration look into indicting Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton over her email use. So does that mean New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie could be the one to make the decision? During an interview that aired Sunday on CBS's "Face the Nation," host John Dickerson noted that Trump has repeatedly said on the campaign trail that Clinton should face jail time over her emails. And if she isn't indicted before then, Dickerson asked, would Trump have his U.S. attorney general prosecute her?

The presumptive GOP nominee applied for a permit to build a seawall next to Trump International Golf Links & Hotel Ireland in County Clare to prevent erosion, according to Politico. His application included an environmental impact statement that explicitly mentions "global warming and its effects." According to Politico's report, that statement says that rising sea levels in that region could accelerate erosion. The statement...

    The Federal Election Commission (FEC) has asked a Ted Cruz super PAC to explain why it gave $500,000 to another super PAC supporting one of his Republican rivals. According to financial disclosures from June, Keep the Promise I - one of four separate committees backing Cruz - gave half a million dollars to CARLY for America, the political action committee supporting Carly Fiorina. Super PACs are legally allowed to give money to other super PACs - they are only prohibited from donating directly to any political campaign. But it's unusual for one of these groups to give money to an...

    On Saturday, all three broadcast morning news shows talked about the National Enquirer allegations against GOP presidential candidate Ted Cruz, allegations for which there is still no on-the-record source or any other supporting evidence. CBS, which took the high road and skipped the tawdry allegations on Friday’s Evening News, this morning offered a 68-second item read by CBS This Morning: Saturday co-anchor Anthony Mason, which cast the matter as a “he said, he said,” between the two candidates. ABC’s Good Morning America offered a full report from weekend political correspondent Devin Dwyer, in which Dwyer unfortunately cast both Cruz and...

    On CBS This Morning on Tuesday, correspondent Chip Reid took notes from YouTube to find out what kids thought about the presidential election. Reid asked fifth graders at a Virginia charter school about the mechanics of the election cycle, insinuating that kids were more civil than the GOP candidates had been behaving. The series of questions focused mostly on how "mean" Trump was, but Reid gave the kids opportunities to praise Muslims and expound on “women’s rights.”

    On Friday, the NBC, CBS, and ABC morning shows all blasted Thursday’s Republican presidential debate as “vulgar” “silly” and “childish.” The same networks that have routinely provided ample airtime to Donald Trump’s personal attacks on his rivals, lectured the GOP contenders on civility. Co-host Matt Lauer began NBC’s Today: “Vitriol and vulgarity. The Republican race reaches new lows during last night's debate....Is this any way to elect a president?” Minutes later, fellow co-host Savannah Guthrie lamented: “New nastiness, new lows in the Republican presidential race.”Nets Slam ‘Vulgar’ and ‘Childish’ GOP Debate Reaching ‘New Lows’In the report that followed, correspondent Peter...

    Malkin: RNC Approved Debate Moderator: Beltway Elitist John "Pulverizer" Dickerson Who is the moderator of tonight's South Carolina GOP debate? He's another not-so-moderate, card-carrying member of the D.C. media ruling class.John Dickerson is the host of Face the Nation on CBS News, political director for the network, and a longtime political correspondent for Slate and Time magazine. If there were ever a poster boy for inside-the-Beltway journalism, Dickerson is it.*snip* Perhaps most notoriously, Dickerson penned a screed last year advising President Obama to "Go for the Throat!"; "declare war on the Republican Party;" and "pulverize" his political enemies over gun control, climate change, and immigration.Dickerson...
